Passports are one of the most important documents we have. They identify us to the world and serve as our identification while traveling. But what is given name in a passport? A passport contains the full name of the individual, which may or may not include their given name.
For example, if your given name is Sarah but you go by Sasha, you would list Sasha as your given name on your passport.
What is Given Name in Passport?
A passport has a given name in the form of the first name followed by the last name. For example, if someone’s given name is John, their passport would list their name as John Smith.
How to get Given Name in Passport
To get your given name in your passport, you must provide the following at the time of application:
-Your full legal name
-Your current passport photo
-A photocopy of your ID, such as a driver’s license or passport
If you have changed your name legally, you must also provide proof of the change. This can be a court order or marriage certificate. You may also need to provide a copy of your birth certificate if it is not available online.
When Is a passport given a Name?
Passports are issued with a unique nine-character alphanumeric code, which is used to identify the passport holder. When a passport is given a name, this code is changed to reflect the new name. For example, if you were born Anthony and your passport was issued with the code A1P1, your new name would be Anthony John P.
What happens if the name is changed on a passport?
If a person’s given name is changed on their passport, the new name should be entered in the “Given Name” field of the passport application. If there are no changes to other identifying information on the passport application, the issuing authority will not typically require proof of the change. However, if there are any changes to either the given or surname field of a passport application, such as a divorce or adoption, then the issuing authority may request proof of the name change.
What are the consequences of not having your passport with you
If you do not have your passport with you when you are traveling, you may be required to present other forms of identification such as a driver’s license or a photo identification card. If the identification that is presented cannot prove your identity, the traveler may be subject to additional inspection and/or delay in being allowed to enter the country. Failure to have your passport with you can also result in fines and possible imprisonment.
What can be done if your passport has been lost or stolen

You will also need to provide proof of your current address, such as a utility bill or bank statement. If your passport has been stolen, you will need to alert the relevant authorities as soon as possible and follow their instructions on how to report the theft.
